So it’s time to witness the new format in cricket which will be known as THE 6IXTY. The Cricket Windies has made an announcement of this new format. This year a brand-new format called THE 6IXTY – Cricket’s Power Game will be introduced to the Caribbean by the Cricket West Indies and the Caribbean Premier League.
The inaugural THE 6IXTY will include both male and female teams competing in a brand-new 60-ball competition with some of the top cricketers of the world.
With the introduction of these new improvements, the T10 Cricket will evolve into a faster, action-packed game. When it comes to playing at top speed, Caribbean players have always been forwards to the ball. In addition, this format is a positive move by the Windies Board to support both players and fans around the world who will soon witness lightning-fast cricket.
Now, Lets go through the rules of the Format :
Each batting team has six wickets, and when the sixth one falls, everyone is out.
There are two PowerPlay overs for each batting team. By striking two sixes in the first 12 balls, they can activate a third PowerPlay. Anytime between overs 3 and 9, an additional PowerPlay over may be taken.
Before the action moves to the other end for the last 30 balls, 30 balls will be bowled from one end.
No bowler may bowl more than 2 overs for the inning. The 30 balls will be delivered in 5 different overs.
A team member gets taken off the field for the final six balls if they fail to bowl their overs in the stipulated time.
Fans will vote for the timing of a “Mystery Free Hit” where a batter can’t be dismissed by the bowler.
The rule book looks very much exciting as fans will witness a new format of cricket with most happening players who make the cricket joyfull at any given point of time in a match.

Revolution in Cricket Format’s
Cricket has never disappointed its fans and always has come up with something new to keep the sport alive and also the interest of fans.
The 65-over match played against England, marked the beginning of limited-overs cricket. The international game has since decided to hold World Cups in the 50-over and 20-over (T20) formats because it was judged to be too lengthy.
A new city franchise-based 100-ball league was introduced in 2021 and now we have a shorter format of 60 balls.
